Stop the tax bill


Our patients need us to be their voice right now. Congress is on the verge of cutting health care for 13 million people to pay for tax cuts for the rich. 

This dangerous tax cut bill, which includes the repeal of the individual mandate, is expected to go to a vote this week. There is major public pressure on members of Congress to oppose this bad bill. And, if we have learned anything in the last year, it is that when we fight for our patients we can make a tremendous impact on the final vote. Doctors and medical students are on the Hill today to make their voices heard. Can we count on you to keep up the pressure until the vote is over?

Take action now:

  1. CALLS: Contact your member of Congress using the capitol switchboard: 202-224-3121. Find the list of targets by clicking here.
    • Tell them to put patients over politics and oppose the tax bill which cuts health care for millions to give tax cuts to the rich. 
  1. DONATE: Give to Doctors for America to ensure we have the resources we need to continue to mobilize our 18,000 membership at this critical time. Millions of patients are counting on us to fight against attacks on Medicare, Medicaid and the ACA in the year ahead. Help us enter 2018 strong.

Before you head out for the holidays, please take a minute to make a call to your member of Congress and a year-end tax deductible donation.


Yours in service,

Jim Duffett

Executive Director
